We enjoyed celebrating 2-22-22 today! Check out these awesome outfits and "two" activities around our school! Even our teachers joined in the fun looking for red '2's' all over the building and trading them in for prizes! We appreciate all of our fantastic community support for donating these prizes!
3rd grade had an amazing experience gem mining! They found a lot of rocks and minerals they had been studying about in class! Check out the smiles on these faces! #LESFamily #ScienceRocks
We want to give a HUGE shout out to Mary Anne Fabian for National School Counseling Week. She loves our students and staff so very well. She lends a listening ear, a gentle shoulder, loving hugs, and an open door to anyone at anytime of the day. We are so blessed to call her ours! Thank you Ms. Fabian for all you do to keep us going!
National School Counseling Week is Feb. 7-11, and we're happy to join our schools in celebrating. Every day, school counselors make a difference for students! Join us in thanking them for all they do! #SDPCBetterTogether #NSCW22

The School District of Pickens County (SDPC) will open on a two-hour delay on Thursday, January 20, 2022, due to the continued danger of ice on shaded areas and on secondary roads. The two-hour delay gives additional time for ice to melt off the roads and will improve visibility for drivers. -- Morning 3K and 4K classes are canceled. PM classes operate on a normal schedule. -- No Buses on Icy Roads -- High school students (including Career Center) should check their Schoology messages for adjusted class times and bell schedules.
Wednesday, January 19, 2022 will be a Digital Learning Day for the School District of Pickens County due to the continued danger of icy roads. Students will not attend school in-person. While there are areas in our county that have improved, there are many shaded areas that continue to have noticeable ice and black ice on roads. Temperatures are expected to drop again tonight and are not predicted to rise above freezing until after 9:00 am. Even with a delay, transportation would have to occur on the roads prior to this time.
Tuesday, January 18, 2022 will be a Digital Learning Day for the School District of Pickens County due to icy roads. Students will not attend school in-person. Temperatures are expected to drop into the teens tonight following the snow, sleet, freezing rain from yesterday. Noticeable ice and black ice on roads throughout the county is a serious concern tomorrow morning. We will make a decision regarding school for Wednesday (January 19, 2022) on Tuesday evening.
